Necklace Clasp Showing Soft Flex Wrap TechniqueHere is a new technique for connecting bead stringing wire to a clasp orSoft Flex Wire Wrap Jewelry Making Technique jewelry wire component.  At right you can view the connection to a clasp.  At left you can view the connection to a yoke or other wire component.  This is a jewelry making technique that uses solid jewelry wire instead of crimp beads.  This is an intermediate jewelry making technique.  Our instructions for this technique begin below.

Step 1:  Start with a segment of 20, 22 or 24 gauge wire at least 3 inches long.  Half-hard wire works best if you have it.  Using your bent chain nose pliers, make a 90 degree bend 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inches from one end.  (See the picture below-left.)

Step 2:  Using your fine step jaw pliers, make a relatively large loop in your wire as shown below-center.  You can view how to use your fine step jaw pliers to make a loop in wire here.  Use the largest step in your fine step jaw pliers. 

Step 3:  Grasp the loop you just made with your bent chain nose pliers.  You are going to hold the loop in your pliers as you begin bending the end of the wire.  This will preserve the round shape of the wire while you are pushing the end of the wire.
